School of Wine & Spirits Business, BSB has officially received accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA), one of the world’s leading authorities on post-graduate business education, demonstrating its continuing commitment to excellence in management education.
Upon receiving AMBA accreditation, all current MBA students and recent MBA alumni of School of Wine & Spirits Business, BSB are invited to join in AMBA’s global member community of more than 60,000 students and alumni in more than 150 countries on a free basis, for networking, thought leadership, career development, and a variety of benefits.
Accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA) represents the highest standard of achievement in post-graduate business education. Its rigorous assessment criteria ensure that only the highest-calibre programmes which demonstrate the best standards in teaching, curriculum, and student interaction achieve Association of MBAs accreditation.
The School of Wine & Spirits Business, BSB is primarily based in Dijon, France. The school is an independent, not-for-profit business school which has a mission to “provide current and future managers with high quality education supported by research activities, and to contribute to the development of the region’s economy. Our management education programmes are entrepreneurial and internationally focused, allowing students to acquire professional expertise integrating the needs of the business world and corporate social responsibility”.
Members of AMBA’s accreditation panel commended the support and advice provided by the MBA Director and other faculty members to supporting the career advancement of not only students, but also alumni. The panel thought this added to the personal, bespoke support provided by the Careers services team at the school.
The panel also mentioned the myriad of opportunities to connect with practitioners and experts throughout the programme for the participants.
Finally, the panel noted that the programme had successfully balanced the general management requirements of an MBA with an in-depth focus on the wine industry, in a way that many schools with specialist programmes have not been able to achieve.
Stéphan Bourcieu, Dean and Director general of BSB, said: “It is a great pleasure and pride to obtain the AMBA accreditation for our MBA Wine & Spirits Business, which is the international leader in its field. AMBA accreditation is the ultimate recognition in management education. We are delighted with this achievement, at the end of a process in which we were remarkably supported by the AMBA teams, whom I thank on this occasion.”
AMBA accreditation is international in scope and reach, and AMBA works under the belief that accredited programmes should be of the highest standard and reflect changing trends and innovation in post-graduate management education. Its accreditation process reflects this commitment to fostering innovation, and demanding Business Schools to perform at the highest level continually.
Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive of the Association of MBAs and Business Graduates Association (BGA) said: ‘I would like to congratulate everyone at the School of Wine & Spirits Business, BSB for this accreditation. This school is clearly innovative and working towards creating impactful leaders for the future of the wine and spirit industry, while also impressing the importance of sustainability.
